29 years as an educator
I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. In fact, playing teacher with my dolls and stuffed animals is one of my earliest memories. I guess it's the 16 years of experience in kindergarten that makes me continue to enjoy using centers/stations and collabrative groups. I think students learn the most when they are able to discuss with their classmates and do hands-on activities with a minimum of worksheets. My most favorite moment is when I can literally see the "lightbulb" turn on for students. What a JOY and BLESSING teaching is to me.
